I fear my poker career will slow down a little in September due to work and moving to a new city. I am going to set a goal of 10 - 15 k hands online at $0.25 NL and taking shots at $0.50 NL. I hope to turn a profit of around $700. This will give me a large enough roll to play $0.50 NL comfortably and start taking shots at $1 NL.I also want to check out a casino and start playing live.I also want to improve my SNG/MTT game. I think I might buy and read HOH 1 & 2.

Play 10k hands online. Play between 80-100 hours live. I'd like to profit about 4k but I think I could probably do much better than that if I stick to playing the amount of time that I would like to play. I'd also like to curb my spending as much as possible. I don't know what type of monetary goal to set for that but hopefully bc I'll be playing so much I'll be spending less time drinking and blowing money. I will be in Florida for a week during September so that may disrupt my live goals a bit. I'll also be playing a WPT pre-lim event at the Borgota Poker Open and a prelim event at the USPC so I'd like to cash in one of those.

Goals for September,No more playing on “auto-pilot”, more observation and thought needed.Cash Games, concentrate on the $100NLH and PLOTournaments, this is my biggest leak, work on it to be ready enough for some of the WCOOP tournaments later this month. Horse, play less of it, but still try to improve my stud games.Make stacks of cash.

My goals for this month:1. No more tilting and playing high limits-Haven't done this that much except the past couple days and got quite lucky playing over my head hu NL which is not my game at all. Just wanna stay away from chasing my loses like an idiot2.Get a better grip on Razz and HORSE in general-playing mainly on stars it seems like these games are hot and there should be plenty of fish so I want to be able to make some money off of them which leads me to3.THE WCOOP! I've never played an event always saying next year, well dammit this is the year I def have the br to afford it! I don't really wanna put 530 on a tourney so I'm looking at the 215 HORSE or 215 Razz but I'm not great at either but believe I can do it. Also those fit into my schedule best, in theory the 530 o8 would make the most sense for me but I'd have to miss the first 30 min and the buyin is a bit steep, maybe I can sat in.4. Cash Games-I play mainly 2/4 and 3/6 o8 and beat them pretty well so I hope to continue to do that and keep building. I can definetly afford 5/10 and the players aren't that good, but still mentally have trouble with the $$ swings so I'll see about that.Hope everyone has a successful month! :club:

Id like to make 3-4k this month in cash games, although Im expecting to lul a bit as I move up to 8 tabling shorthanded 100NL. Hopefully I will be able to adjust quickly. Any tourney scores are gravy.Current Bankroll 2,000 hopefully itll be at 4k after my cashouts at the end of the month. Good Luck everyone.

Maybe I should adjust my monthly goal up a little bit. I just got a river call from someone who couldn't beat my board in a 30/60 stud game. I LOVE Party.

For Sept I actually want to sit down and play more than 1000 hands. A lot more. Focus on 1tabling 10-20 to improve (while doing something else). Read King Yao's book (that I just got from Amazon). Get a new monitor so I can 2-table 3-6 while I'm 1tabling 10-20. Play 100 more 21 HULHE SNGs on Stars, then move up to 52.5's. Get good at LO8. Read Sklansky on Razz (Poker) and get better at razz.Since I have almost 1800 FPPs on Stars, I'll also try and satellite into the WCOOP 215 LHE event. There's a 200+R satellite for it. I wish the event was a RB tourney.

August --Make my spreadsheet useful (its awesome)....DONE--Build bankroll for run...DONE--Confidence/reading of theory/reading new books...DONE AND NEARLY DONESeptember--2 Big Final Tables in MTT (either live or online)--1k-2k (not blinds)--drink less when playing (find the right balance that is past fear but before carelessness)--cut down on live MTTs--Reintroduce yourself to cash game--Find a real ****ing job! (so you can save the bankroll...income is good)

You mean 1000 hands, A DAY right? Not for the whole month?

Im not a grinder... what i was getting at is that I haven't been playing much, but 1000 hands for the last month might be only a slight exaggeration.

Hey guys, I just made a life mistake and got a DUI. I'm currently trying to figure all this out (court, attorney, estimated cost...etc) and I really am aware of the seriousness of what I did. So, as a front, I'm gonna learn from this.Now, as far as poker...I really feel depressed right now and that "life tilt" feeling so I think I'm going to stay away from cash games for a while. At least until I get more of this settled. I think cash games could be a big leak as I know I'm going to be more open to steam sessions now.I guess once I have a picture of the punishments for my crime I'll re-address my goals...but I'm just kinda posting here cause I wanted to just get stuff off my chest.Anyways, all the above said. I'm basically staying away from cash games for a while and will only play tournaments when I decide to play, until I feel the "life-tilt" has passed and I'm ready to get back to a normal way of life.GL2U all this month. Don't drink and drive, even when you know you're not drunk but would probably blow over if tested. That's how I was last night.- Jordan

I'd yell at you; but I have no idea how I avoided getting one of those of my own. And I used to drive really drunk. Even now, my wife and I will split a bottle of wine plus consume a couple drinks on a special night out. I would probably blow >0.8. stay strong.
